My favorite independent footwear store for sneakers has closed, however, I found a great alternative, Zappos.com. They offer free shipping for purchases and returns. Zappos provides you with 11 categories: size, width, performance, brand, color, price range, theme, style, performance/support type, insole (padded, orthodic, orthopedic…) , weight, and feature. They even accept insurance for those that need footwear for their diabetes.
Speaking of diabetes, my doctor suggested that I buy regular sneakers with support and depth. After reading Consumer Report, I’ve found the best footwear (Scarpa) with support shock absorbing features, and walking. If you have bunions and need that width, these sneaks are for you! Need more questions answered? There’s online customer support, a rating system by customers, and a demo video.
